Electronic Engineering (EuroMasters) MSc
Why choose this course
This degree mirrors the two-year masters programme that is common elsewhere in Europe and in the USA, with the aim of developing your professional skills for industry. High-performing students have the opportunity to find a professional placement or internship, enabling them to boost their CV by demonstrating industrial work experience not offered by the standard one-year masters programme.
What you will study
Our two-year MSc Euromasters programme is designed for electronic engineering students who are interested in gaining further qualifications in advanced, cutting-edge techniques and technologies, and enables you to choose from a wide range of modules offered by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
The programme includes an enhanced project where students may have the opportunity to develop publishable or patentable work, as well as training in transferable skills including business awareness and management. The advanced taught technical content is in sub-disciplines of electronic engineering closely aligned with the internationally leading research conducted in the Department.

Study and work abroad
There may be opportunities to acquire valuable European experience by working or conducting research abroad during your degree or shortly afterwards. It is possible to do this in the summer period with an Erasmus+ grant working on your dissertation or as a recent graduate. In order to qualify your Erasmus+ traineeship must be a minimum of two months.
The MSc Euromasters complies with the structure defined by the Bologna Agreement, and thus it is in harmony with the Masters programme formats adhered to in European universities. Consequently, it facilitates student exchanges with our partner universities in the Erasmus Exchange programme.
A number of bilateral partnerships exist with partner institutions at which students can undertake their project. Current partnerships held by the Department include the following:
- Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic
- University of Prague, Czech Republic
- Universität Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain
- Universita' degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Italy
Students undertake an extended project within one of the following research centres during the second year of study in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering:
- Institute for Communication Systems
- Centre for Vision Speech and Signal Processing
- Surrey Space Centre
- Advanced Technology Institute
Alternatively there is the possibility to undertake a project on exchange at one of our Erasmus+ partners.
Graduates have high employability, particularly when they have undertaken a placement or internship, which can lead to a substantially enhanced CV.

Policies and regulations
Learning and disability
We have two services, the Student Personal Learning and Study Hub (SPLASH) and Additional Learning Support (ALS) which can help develop your learning.
Student Personal Learning and Study Hub
SPLASH is a learning space in the Library where our learning development team is based. It comprises dedicated Student Learning Advisers and Information Skills Librarians who can help you develop your academic and research skills, including writing, presenting, revision and critical thinking.
Find out more about the study support available.
Additional Learning Support
ALS is the University’s disability and neurodiversity service which supports students with disabilities, long-term health conditions, specific learning differences (for example: dyslexia and dyspraxia) and other neurodiverse conditions (for example: autism spectrum and attention deficit disorder).
If you have a disability, we encourage you to disclose your condition and register with the service so you can be appropriately supported during your studies.
The ALS team can arrange exam and learning support adjustments, give advice on applications for the Disabled Students' Allowance and screen students for dyslexia and dyspraxia. Regular study skills and mentoring support is also available.
See the Additional Learning Support website for more information.
A minimum 2:2 in a UK honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in Electrical or Electronic Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics or a related engineering discipline. Relevant industrial experience may also be considered.

English language requirements
IELTS Academic: 6.5 overall, 6.0 in each component (or equivalent).
View the other English language qualifications that we accept.
If you do not currently meet the level required for your programme, we offer intensive pre-sessional English language courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies here. The University of Surrey is also an IELTS test centre.
The University of Surrey recognises that many students enter their higher education course with valuable knowledge and skills developed through a range of professional, vocational and community contexts. If this applies to you, a process called recognition of prior learning (RPL) may allow you to enter your course at a point appropriate to your previous learning and experience, or to join the start of a course without the formal entry requirements. This means that you may be exempt from certain elements of study in the course for which you have applied and be awarded credit based on your previous qualifications/experience. There are restrictions on RPL for some courses and fees may be payable for certain claims.
Please see the Code of practice for recognition of prior learning and prior credit: taught programmes (PDF) for further information. Please email Admissions with any queries.
